As a blogger for The Global Jewish Voice, you will write one post every two weeks on a topic of your choosing related to your experience as a Jewish student. Posts will be 500 to 700 words, and will be edited by a student editor.
Bloggers will be asked to write for two semesters, and would earn a stipend of $100 per semester.
This blog seeks to create relevant, edgy, serious—or sometimes funny—content for a global Jewish student audience. The writing will include commentary on current events, reported news from campuses around the world and personal essay-style piece. Bloggers will raise, discuss and analyze serious issues of their choosing, and confront controversies.
